This is nice! 

The Star just reported that the Exchange 106 skyscraper is officially now the tallest building in Malaysia as it stands at 492m. This means that Petronas Twin Towers (452m) no longer wears the crown as the tallest building in our country.

Not only that, but this makes Exchange 106 the tallest building in Southeast Asia, which is previously a spot held by the Twin Towers. What’s even more exciting is that the building is now ready for operation.

In a statement, Exchange 106 representative said,

“The Exchange 106 offers column-free and long spans of office space ranging from 22,000 sq ft to 34,000 sq ft, the largest columnless space in Malaysia. These are designed for flexible layouts and open plan interior configurations.”

Following that, it was revealed that the first tenant of the skyscraper is expected to occupy the space by December 2019. If you didn’t know, Exchange 106 is located at Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) and it was developed by the scandalous state fund 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Bhd).

TRX is a project spearheaded by former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak but currently, Exchange 106 and TRX are owned by two organisations. They are:

  • Mulia Property Development (Indonesian company) 
  • Malaysia’s Ministry of Finance. 

Well, isn’t that amazing? But, sadly, Exchange 106 may lose its title to Merdeka PNB 118 soon because builders are racing to complete the 500m high-rise building. Whew, KL is turning into a proper concrete jungle, like New York.
